Into My Life

I used positive visualization as a form of meditation when I was undergoing treatment for breast cancer. I imagined a place that made me feel secure and calm, as a way to get me outside my stress, to help me forget what was going on in my body. The place that always came to mind was the road to our Colorado mountain cabin. Not the cabin itself, nor the mountains or meadows surrounding it. My mind went to the way there, to the hopeful anticipation and energy I feel as I approach our place of serenity and beauty. A few years after treatment, I painted that road. I made it through treatment, I made it to the cabin. We all make our own way; we all have our own road.
